The search is on for our unsung heroes

THE Queensland Regional Achievement & Community Awards are now open and are there to search for unsung heroes within our communities.  

The awards, presented by Channel 7 Queensland, aim to acknowledge and reward our unsung heroes. 

The awards provide an opportunity for communities around the state to embrace and salute the success of our local achievers through youth leadership, events, community service, environmental practices and regional development. 

Locals are being called on to nominate someone they know in the following categories:

  • The Prime Super Community of the Year Award
  • The Peabody Environment and Landcare Award
  • The Origin Energy Regional Service Award
  • The Reay Services Energy and Sustainability Award 
  • The Safeguard Events and Tourism Award
  • The Styleprint Youth Leadership Award

By nominating someone you know, you will give them the chance to win great prizes thanks to the Commonwealth Bank.  

As the major prize patron, Commonwealth Bank will present each award winner with a $2500 Visa Debit Mastercard account and each winner will be put forward for the Commonwealth Bank Special Commendation Award, with the chance to win a further $2500.

Winners will be announced in Toowoomba at the Gala Dinner Presentation hosted at the the Toowoomba Showgrounds, on Saturday 9th November 2013.


The Queensland Regional Achievement and Community Awards are proudly supported by Queensland Country Life and Angove Family Winemakers.
